Recent judicial pronouncements upon the area of registration and validity of company charges and the need for recent amendments effected by the legislature have served to highlight the continuing anomalies evident in this area of the law. To a large extent these anomalies impact the wider area of chattel securities but this paper is restricted to those with effect upon the sphere of company securities.

Until remedies in the form of national legislative changes are applied, the laudable object of the Corporations Law will not be achieved in this sphere. The realities of the Australian federal system still impinge.
